The popularity of Harry Potter has continued to live on for years through the digital age. Social media platforms have made it possible for the millions of fans of the franchise, to come together in their love for all things Hogwarts, Harry, and more. Gryffindors are the bravest and most daring bunch of students at Hogwarts. Most of the main characters belong to the Gryffindor house, and over the years these characters have given fans amazing meme-worthy content. As much as we love the house that Harry Potter himself belongs to, it's still fun to poke fun at the dominance and often times arrogance of the Gryffindors. Here are 10 memes about Gryffindor that are just too funny.
10 Joe Biden
Everyone can vividly remember the iconic scene of all the first years getting sorted into their houses in the first movie. We see Harry plead with great effort to the sorting hat, "Not Slytherin, not Slytherin." Harry has a bad taste in his mouth about Slytherin, even though the sorting hat believe he could be great in the house. Ultimately Harry is granted his wish, and is sorted into the house of Gryffindor. This meme of Joe Biden and President Obama just fits so perfectly.
9 50 Points For Gryffindor
It seems like Gryffindor is always winning the house cup. Why is that? Well as the Gryffindors are perceived as wildly brave, they also have to break some (a bunch actually) of the rules to get the results they want. More often than not, the times they must break the rules, are typically the scenarios in which they are wildly celebrated, and rewarded points to their house. It's kind of just a running joke that no matter what they do, the Gryffindors will get points galore!
8 Sacred Gryffindor Scarf
Those who are fans of Harry Potter know that everything associated with it is sacred. And when you associate with a specific house, you are loyal to that house. Does it seem a little ridiculous that someone would be arrested for burning a Gryffindor scarf? Sure. Is it absolutely justified that this person was arrested? Also yes.
7 Fraternizing With The Enemy
Though it may be hard to believe, the houses do intermingle. Although it does seem rather scandalous that a Gryffindor would be with a Hufflepuff. Gryffindors are in control, and natural born leaders. While Hufflepuffs are more reserved by nature. But hey whatever works.
6 Buzzfeed Disappointment
It is fair to say that most people think they are Gryffindors. I mean let's face it, Gryffindors are courageous, cool, and house many powerful wizards. When taking a quiz to be sorted into a house yourself, it makes sense to secretly wish for Gryffindor. And when that is not the result you get it can be well...a disappointment. But even though Gryffindor is pretty awesome, the other three house have their own unique qualities that make them just as special!
5 Harry's Son
Of course Harry would want his son in Gryffindor, but at the same time Albus Severus Potter was named after Severus Snape, a great Slytherin. In actuality this scene in the movie is sweet and Harry tells Albus that everything will work out how it's supposed to! But it is pretty funny to picture him saying something more along the lines off this. Harry is the one who insisted on being a Gryffindor, so it only would be air to make his son follow in his footsteps. Plus we all know the Gryffindors think they are without a doubt the best house at Hogwarts.
4 Must Always Be The Best
Many fans perceive Gryffindor as the best house, and Gryffindor happens to see it the same way. It is no secret they think they are the best of the best. They are natural born leaders, as well as natural born narcissists. A Gryffindor will go out of their way to prove themselves to be the strongest, wisest, or bravest wizard in the room. If it means undermining the rules to get their way, a Gryffindor will go above and beyond expectations.
3 Turning A Blind Eye
As previously mentioned, Gryffindors may seem like the 'good guys' but they have no problem breaking the rules. Since the franchise follows three Gryffindors we get to see them go on crazy adventures that other students wouldn't dream of. Along the way they break many Hogwarts rules. They use magic outside of school, they go into the dark forest, and much more. More often than not they are breaking the rules for a greater cause. But it's no secret that Dumbledore lets Gryffindor get away with quite a lot.
2 OMG It's A Cat
While they claim to be oh so brave, many Gryffindors are afraid of the most trivial things. Filch's cat, spiders, you name it. I mean they are wizards, you'd think they wouldn't be afraid of anything. For every amazing conquest or enemy conquered, the wizards and witches of Gryffindor have weird random fears just like the rest of us. Yes it is probably true that students in the other houses are afraid of smaller things too, but it's way funnier when a Gryffindor is scared.
1 What A Gryffindor Is
There are truly so many parts to being a Gryffindor. You must be brave, kind, loyal, and of course the best. And while these are all the traits associated with the house, there are plenty more that other houses have perceived as being a part of the Gryffindor house. Most Slytherins think they are evil, because the two houses are always at war somehow. Ravenclaws can respect them, but don't necessarily think they are the smartest bunch of wizards and witches. Hufflepuffs generally have no problems with the Gryffindors and just look forward to hanging out with everyone. The truth is the wizards of each house aren't all that different from each other, Gryffindors really just love quidditch!
